Dental Implants Q & A

What is a dental implant?

Many adults think dental implants are the next best thing to having natural teeth, and they might be right. When you lose your own teeth due to an illness, a traumatic accident, or tooth decay, it can negatively impact your self-esteem. You might also avoid smiling, or eating foods you used to love. Dental implants help you bite, chew, and smile with confidence. They're sturdy, stable teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

A dental implant is a metal post that a dentist implants into your jawbone beneath your gums. Essentially, it’s the root of your new tooth. Once the post has been installed and your mouth has fully healed, a process that generally takes a few weeks, the dentist will mount a custom-made crown (replacement tooth) onto the metal post. The implants fuse to your jawbone, which makes them incredibly steady and secure.

These metal posts also work to help dentures, crowns, and bridges stay securely fastened to your jaw. 

Why are dental implants so popular?

Beyond functioning, feeling, and looking like your natural teeth, dental implants provide the following benefits:

  • Are a permanent, lifelong solution
  • Offer an economical solution to replacing missing teeth
  • Help maintain your natural face shape and restore your smile
  • Preserve your healthy jawbone
  • Help prevent decay of surrounding natural teeth
  • Allow you to speak comfortably and naturally
  • Don't fall out or move around in your mouth
  • Enhance your ability to chew your favorite foods without pain
  • Aren't wide open to cavities with an implanted crown
  • Offer a time-tested, predictable result for tooth repair

Who are candidates for dental implants?

Whether you're missing one tooth or multiple teeth, you might be the perfect candidate for dental implants. Your jaw needs to be finished growing, and your gums must be healthy. Dental implants are not for children but are an excellent solution for adults.

You might also be a perfect candidate for implants if you're fed up with uncomfortable dentures, or it's time to replace a bridge or partial dentures. Patients in search of a more permanent, long-lasting solution to dental work tend to be great candidates for dental implants.
